Barrow sack manager after two months in charge


Barrow have parted company with manager Michael Jolley after just eight games in charge with assistant Rob Kelly named as his replacement until the end of the season.

Former Grimsby Town manager Jolley replaced David Dunn who was sacked in December last year following a poor start to the season.

Jolley was appointed on December 23 on a two-and-a-half-year deal but a record of two wins, one draw and five defeats saw him relieved of his duties as Bluebirds boss.

Barrow were promoted back to the Football League last season as National League champions but the Cumbria club are currently 23rd in League Two after 14 defeats from 27 in the fourth tier, their latest being a 2-1 loss at home to Morecambe on Saturday which left them one point adrift in the relegation zone.
